We made these lollipop ghosts last Halloween for a small Trick or Treat party and they were a big hit with the kids! We used white fabric last year, but jumbo Kleenex tissue works just as well. Make them for a party or make them as something different to give out to Trick or Treaters.
Time: 1 minute per ghost
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's, Over 10's, Any Age
Lollipop in a wrapper (so that it does not stick to the tissue or fabric)
Jumbo Kleenex tissue, white fabric or cheesecloth
Ribbon, twist ties, string or rubber band - anything you like to tie with
Black felt marker
Hold a lollipop and fold back any loose packaging.
Grab a tissue and drape over lollipop (I tend to drape at an angle so that the tissue does not look straight and too perfect).
Smooth out the tissue a bit on the front so that you can draw a face on it.
Wrap your preferred tie around the base of the lollipop and tie a knot around the back.
Draw your spookiest ghost face with the felt pen (The ink will bleed which enhances the effect).
Present ghosts on a tray or as I did in a cake pop stand.
